Fire Kills Gushegu DCEs 8-Yr-Old Daughter

An eight-year-old daughter of the Gushegu District Chief Executive Alhassan Fuseini has been killed in a fire outbreak at his residence.

Starr News’ Northern regional correspondent Eliasu Tanko, who was at the scene said: “The child is burnt completely and it’s very gory.”

“The DCE is distraught and unbalanced,” Tanko reported.

According to him, the fire started around 11pm on Wednesday and the DCE saw smoke coming from the room of his four children “who were fast asleep.”

Tanko reported that the DCE “screamed and three of the children woke up and were able to run through the fire for safety.

“The eight-year-old got trapped in the raging fire and before the fire tenders arrived she was burnt beyond recognition.”

The body is being prepared for burial in accordance with Islamic tradition.
